I think the biggest issue was Hailey who thought her twin sister was gonna die....Hailey was freakin' out - "I'm so sorry I was ever mean to my sister...All we ever did was fight and I hope I get to see her again"...Blah....

After spending a while at the ER I realized that I'm kinda glad I'm not in the health care field....

Glad to hear she's OK Rich.

I've had quite a few scares with my 2 kids!

Rich,

So glad to hear that she is going to be okay. Similar thing happened to my son a couple years ago; plate glass top on an end table, he leaned on it as he was walking around and they both hit the tile floor at the same time. Blood and glass went everywhere, scooped him up, wrapped the wound with a big towel and off to the ER... Thank God several thousand dollars later he is fine with only a bad memory and scars to show for it.

RANT ON
Plate glass should be illegal in the furniture business, I swapped the other tops out for tempered glass before it happened again. Anyone with kids should take this as a lesson, it can happen and if I child fell right it could kill.

RANT OFF

Rodney

Rodney - Good points and well taken....We had actually already broken the coffee table top during our last move, so all that was left were the end tables. Now we're down to one and we decided to make it go away before anything similar happens again.

While I like your idea of putting tempered glass on the tables that are already bought, paid for, and in good condition, my wife seems to think an entire new living room suite including a sectional sofa is the answer..... I guess I gotta try to keep her happy

If things keep going the way they are, a new bike may be in my future

that KTM is perfect. i've been thinking about a little more of a streetable bike. been leaning towards a very modded xr650l or a slightly modded xr650r.

i found a few very loose spokes on the rear rim of my bike tonight while going over it. i'm going to try to go to the bike shop tomorrow and see if they can tighten and true them up and have them done by the weekend. if not a street ride might be all i can do.
